Claude Littner snubbed Strictly Come Dancing offer

Share article:

Claude Littner has been asked to do "Strictly Come Dancing".

The "Apprentice" star - who is Lord Sugar's trusted aide alongside Baroness Karren Brady - has been approached by bosses of the ballroom and latin show in the past, but has turned them down because she doesn't think his fancy footwork is very impressive.

Speaking on "Lorraine" on Wednesday (04.10.17), he said: ""Strictly..." asked me, but I can't dance. "Masterchef", but I can't cook, and "Mastermind", I don't know anything."

The business advisor will return to screens this evening when the new series of the reality TV show hits televisions but, although he comes across as caring on screen, he has admitted he actually ignores the contestants so he's not accused of favouritism.

Asked if he gives advice to the contestants, he said recently: "Never, ever, ever. In fact, I never even speak to the candidates. They might say hello to me, but actually I ignore them. The reason I ignore them is probably because I'm quite unfriendly. But mainly because I don't want to show favouritism."

However, Claude isn't so rude to fans who stop him for a picture.

He said: "It gives me great satisfaction to be part of a show that's successful.

"I really enjoy it and it's quite nice to be recognised. If people come up and ask me for a selfie, I oblige ... I'm much scarier [than I seem on the show]...

"On the show I have to develop a persona. In the interviews, I have to be direct and very firm with people because I need to find out whether they are up to the job or their business plan is one that is worth the investment."
